I’ll Be Right Barack

Categories: Conversations, Writing
A Girl:
“I’ll be right Barack.”
A Boy:
“Wait. What? What did you just say?”
Girl:
“I said I’ll be right back.”
Boy:
“No you didn’t. You said you’ll be right Barack.”
Girl:
“Yea, you’re right, I did.”

Boy:
“That’s so corny.”
Girl:
“No it’s not. I’m trying to factor Barack Obama’s name into my everyday life now. He’s a big part of our lives and I want to make sure I say his name at least once a day.”
Boy:
“Why not just wake up every morning and say his name? Then you’ll have said it once every day.”
Girl:
“That’s just not the same. He means more than just a robotic utterance. He’s our President. He deserves more respect than that.”
Boy:
“Oh, but he deserves to be used in corny lines?”
Girl:
“There’s nothing corny about that. You’re just projecting.”
Boy:
“What? No I’m not.”
Girl:
“Now you’re in denial. It’s truly dreadful. You should see someone about that.”
Boy:
“Stop that!”
Girl:
“Don’t cry. Are you going to run to your Obama now?”
Boy:
“No, I’m not going to run to my… wait, what did you just say?”
Girl:
“I said are you going to run to your mama now?”
Boy:
“No you didn’t. You said… Omigosh you’re driving me insane!”
Girl:
“See, I knew you were loopy.”
Boy:
“I’m not loopy. You’re the one that’s loopy.”
Girl:
“Why, because I’m supporting our President?”
Boy:
“Because you’re… you’re… Argh! Weren’t you just leaving?”
Girl:
“Yea, but just for a minute. I’ll be right—”
Boy:
“Don’t say it! Don’t you say it!”
Girl:
“Say what?”
Boy:
“You know what you were going to say!”
Girl:
“How very unpatriotic of you.”
Boy:
“I’m not the one making fun of his name!”
Girl:
“Barack you are. You are making a mockery of his name.”
Boy:
“You did it again!”
Girl:
“No I didn’t. I said but you are. I better tell Obama about you. She’s going to be worried about her son.”
Boy:
“That’s it. We can’t have this conversation any more.”
Girl:
“Yes we can. Yes we can. Yes we can.”
Boy:
“…”
Girl:
“Okay, I really gotta go now. Be right Barack!”
